About Jennifer George

Jennifer George began her career as a clothing designer in New York City. Her line, “Jennifer George” was sold at Bergdorf Goodman, Barney’s, Saks, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, I. Magnin, Stanley Korshak, as well as dozens of other specialty stores across the country.

Jennifer closed her doors on Seventh Avenue in the late 90’s to focus on other interests including, but not exclusively, jewelry design.

The work you see on the website represents years of private commissions and items from Jennifer’s own ready-to-wear inventory.

Jennifer scours flea markets and tag sales collecting vintage jewelry, findings, beads, etc. all of which are used to create her unique bracelets and necklaces.

Each piece is signed and one-of-a-kind, making them a fast growing collector’s item that have made their way into the jewelry boxes of Sharon Osborne, Mariah Carey, and Allison Janney, to name a few…

Jennifer lives and works in New York City with her two amazing / incredible / fabulous / out-of-control children.

Cal Berkeley with a degree in engineering. His first job at the San Francisco Chronicle led to early success, but it wasn’t until he moved to NYC and began working for Hearst publications that he became a household name. Rube Goldberg is the only person ever to be listed in the Merriam Webster Dictionary as an adjective. It’s estimated that he did a staggering 50,000 cartoons in his lifetime.
